Guiding Philosophy

Working in the strictest confidence, partners Martin and Jennifer Butler have combined experience exceeding 45 years working with research-intensive organizations. Sought by senior decision-makers and researchers at all career stages, they are committed to act as a catalyst for researchers, empowering them to maximize research excellence and impact. 

The Butlers fill a niche in what is an ever-changing gap between what research funding agencies demand of researchers, the world that researchers have been trained for, and the support provided by their institutions. Martin mentors teams and individual researchers, helping to develop research programs and craft applications. Jennifer’s focus is on application reviewing, writing, editing and polishing.
